I'm with you on this one. In fact, I don't think I'd wear tassel loafers at all, just not my style. I think the last two responses probably explain it, in that in this area it's mostly suits and conservative dress. I could probably wear a pair in my office, as no one is in a suit, although I do wear odd jackets and trousers. Still, I'd stick with a plain loafer if I were to choose one.
I feel like I saw more tassel loafers when working in the US, but that's probably an obvious observation.
